Love internet shopping, from audio books to nail polish to silk scarves. Audible & Amazon are my go to places.
I've become used to Harrold Glenns voice after listening to the several of his subliminal sleeping and mental health audios. It took some time, as a West Coast American, the UK accent can be a bit distracting but he speaks in such a soothing and rhythmical manner that after a period of time any english speaker can grow to get used to his voice.
That being said, I decided to try something different. I'm retired and have used that as an excuse to sometimes stay abed for hours, listening to audio books, reading, or just frittering time away when I know I have things to do.
Especially right now, when I'm supposed to be packing for a winter cruise-I just don't have time to waste so I purchased this inexpensive audio by Glenn and find it very helpful. In the week that I've used it at night, I've been up and about in the morning..!!early!! in the morning.. and find myself muttering "GET Things Done" to myself for no reason. Just last night I couldn't seem to fall as keep and discovered that Get Things Done is a key phrase in Glenns anti-procrastination mantra. Now I know why it's running thru my mind.
I have 4 different subliminal go to sleep audios, and decided to choose a different one-and decided on Procrastination. Fortunately I can set my iPad to turn off in 30 minutes so I don't need to listen to the 'wake up' portion of Glenns audio. If I haven't gone to sleep-or I wake during the night-a common occurrence-I just put on another audio and doze back to sleep to positive suggestions about something or other.
I especially like the Solfeggio Meditations. They are based on an ancient musical key and each note has some physical or mental thing it's related to. Read the info on them and do listen to the samples. The music is very soothing and combines with Harrold Glenns voice to make a wonderfully relaxing audio to help you sweetly doze off to sleep.
I expect I'll eventually collect all 6 of them.
Glenn has self help self hypnosis audios to assist with almost everything from nail biting to drug addiction to weight loss. There is even one for your child to improve their self esteem
Highly recommended for those who have problems going to sleep and don't respond well to medications
I've been suffering from insomnia for the past few months, tried taking medication but hated the side effects.
I've done group guided meditations before but never bought a recording of one so this is my first experience..I found it VERY helpful.
Now I don't know if this will heal my 70 year old DNA or create any miracles but it DID help me fall asleep and when I awoke in the middle of the night-a frequent experience for me-I simply started it again on my iPad and fell back asleep.
The speakers voice is very British but this West Coast American found it soothing. The background music was smooth and non invasive.
I might buy the rest of the series just to have something different to help me sleep.
I recommend it for those who have difficulty going to or staying asleep.
Lover of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mystery, and westerns in all media, including old-time radio dramatizations.
Don't expect this series of lectures to be entirely about the mechanics of mindfulness meditation. Once the basic practice is described, Professor Muesse spends a great deal of time on Buddhist philosophy and the reasons why conscious examination of our mind's wanderings is beneficial. Very little of this work is guided meditation; however, the guided mediations and instructions provided are consistent with what I have found in other authoritative works.
Because we are creatures of habit, i.e. our brains actually adapt to make it easier to repeat common patterns of thought, breaking the habit of allowing our minds to wander uncontrolled, can help us prevent unproductive patterns of thought from becoming habit.
Both mindfulness mediation and Dr. Muesse's introduction to it are highly recommended by this reviewer.
